In an attempt to connect with and garner votes from Jerusalem’s Anglo community, incumbent Mayor Nir Barkat and his challenger, Moshe Lion, will hold separate English-speaking town-hall-style forums in the capital this week.

Lion, who has yet to address audiences in English since announcing his candidacy for mayor, is scheduled to speak at the Orthodox Union Israel Center Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Barkat, who speaks English fluently, will hold an event on Wednesday at 8 p.m. at a undetermined venue in the capital, his campaign spokesman said Saturday.
The mayoral election, held every five years, will take place on October 22.
